Took a hard fall my first time back on snowblades in 3 years and hit my head pretty hard on the surface. Went out and got this helmet the next day and 1. I felt safer. 2. I was more willing to do tricks at the park. 3. It keeps my head warm without a beanie or anyhting else on under it. 4. Kept me from rolling around on the snow for 10 minutes after bouncing my head off the snow surface.
My first helmet and I'm loving it for a quick purchase and no reaserch. ALSO. I wear my goggles on the outside, my old Spys fit it well but im up grading to Smith goggles this year.
